Product design

We approach product design in such a way that it reflects the needs of your customers and your business alike. Think of us as a partner who helps your team to discover, prototype and validate ideas.

Why product design matters

We start by defining the problem at hand through research and interviews. It’s hard to design without understanding the purpose of a company–its mission and vision. Great design removes friction and makes it easy for users to interact effectively to achieve their objective faster.

We always work collaboratively with our clients. We challenge assumptions, hypotheses and iterate ideas. Working in small and agile teams gives us the opportunity to create final results more quickly and effectively. In return, our clients profit from faster releases, more suitable designs and reduced development costs.

The design process

While working with us for a more extended period, the process can follow some of the steps below.

Defining the problem

We get an understanding of the as-is state and its challenges within the context of your business to uncover the issues and gain insights.

Establishing a hypothesis

Along the qualitative and quantitative research, we deepen our understanding of the challenges you face and start formulating initial ideas.

Creating a potential solution

Identifying what’s essential and building hands-on prototypes enable us to visualise our ideas and look for immediate insights and actionable steps.

Validating and improving

Validating our product concept and leveraging the learning to refine our solutions. This increases speed to market and lowers chance of failure.

Vacuumlabs has provided us with an amazing team of engineers who deliver a great product and help our vision come true. They bring in the right expertise when needed, they challenge us, and they look for simple solutions to difficult problems; meaning we can move fast, learn and iterate.
